[mod_python] Installing mod_python 3.0.1 in Windows

Why was the instructions on how to install mod_python in windows removed from 
the 3.0 documentation? AFAIK in the previous release there was instructions 
on how to do this...

Also, why isn't _anywhere_ (AFAICT) a reference that you _also_ need the Unix 
source (from mod_python-x.tgz) to install it in Windows? From 
http://httpd.apache.org/modules/python-download.cgi one gets the ideia that 
to install it in Windows only the python2.2.2-apache2.0.43.zip is needed?

And finally, why isn't documented that one need msvcr70.dll (not everyone has 
Microsoft Visual _whatever_ installed) to run mod_python?

To resume, please make some documentation on how to install the new 
mod_python on the windows platform, so that someone does go away because 
he/she cannot put mod_python to work... Or at least put up some link to 
http://www.modpython.org/pipermail/mod_python/2002-December/002714.html, and 
to http://www.modpython.org/live/mod_python-2.7.8/doc-html/app-wininst.html

Thanks, and keep up the good work.
